My name is Sean Xie, a graduate from UCLA A.UD's three-year program with a Master of Architecture I degree. Previously, I have worked in Shanghai for 6 years, including 4 years as an interior designer in IBI Group, and 2 years as an instructor at an art college. 

As an interior designer at IBI Group, I have contributed to the design of numerous projects including office buildings, headquarters, hotel, residential projects in Shanghai with world renowned developers such as Greenland, Bank of Communications, and Baolong International.

I am familiar with most design software including AutoCAD, Rhino, Revit, Adobe Creative Suites, SketchUP, Microsoft Office Suites, etc. Moreover, comparing to other architects, I have comprehensive skills from my landscape design background at China Academy of Art, and practical experiences in the interior design sector that can be applied to future architectural project designs.
